T3otli rockets and KUIIS have same purpcse, lo smash the ciirim by delivering a pwjccliU' en the target. Each has its own limits of ranee, accuracy, velocity and rate of fire. Hussey explains Ilial ;i HUH ecu fire with greater vploi'ity, .sending shells spinning into tliti air faster lhan any rocket can travel. Bui its ranee is shorter and its recoi heavier. A rocket, on the othei hand, can lie mounted easily 01 a plane because there is prncli cally no recoil. The naval chief says that gun: arc more accurate.

Grossman, a tiny, sweet-faced but miliiant feminist, a terror to Cleveland murderers, gamblers, thieves, alcoholics, social outcasts, wife-bcaiers : and, yes, even altor- ncys. Celebrating her 21st year on the Municipal Court bench. Judge Grossman recalled recently that she was so small when she took up her judiciary duties that "I had io I sit on a hii'^e record bonk lo got my I chin over the top of the desk." K-j'.VL'ver. !v;r pctitcness anj sex I hnvc not kept her from becoming | Cleveland's most formidable judge. Doesn't Ask, Give l-'nvovs Upon taking office. Miss Gross- 1 man—one of the two first women admitted to Ihc American Bar I Assn., in 1912—said: "I shall act | as a judjje and not a woman, ask- no favors and granting, none— a woman." She has kept her I word. , For "numbers" men, racketeers, I bookmakers and policy boys she lias j no mercy. "GamWing is against | Ihe law," she maintains. "The law the law and circumstances do I not alter cases." Gamblers and I their lawyers try every dodge pos- I sible to avoid her rigid court, where {maximum sentences arc dealt out I freely. Miss Grossman believes War Mo- Ibilizalion Divcclor James P. Byrnes' I ban on racing is the best move lie I ever made. "No\v maybe some of I those parasites will RO to work," she (said. riosgiiiff for Wife-Iiealcrs Another creature firmly dealt I with by Judge Grossman is the wife-beater. Last summer, the 05- year-old woman jurist—a spinster | herself went so far as to advocate I public flogging for men who used | their wives as punching bags. Always a cni-SJider. Miss Gross- I man, who is reportedly equal lo 100 1 policcmc.!!, carries on one-man cam- I paigns for better handling ol moral and mental delinquents whom she I frequently finds on the other sid I of her desk. The lirsl woman judge ol a nior- I als court In the nation—to which she was appointed in 1926 — Miss Grossman has struggled to eliminate misdemeanors and to secure proper treatment for mentally and | physically diseased criminals. She has impressed on the com- I niunity the tact that the handling I of vice cases is a medical, socio- 1 logical and phychiatrical problem I as well as a legal one. Xo Other Ambition The Cleveland jurist has no further ambitions. She believes she I has a "full-slrctl job" on her hands I right now. "I could never he hap- I py in another job.' she said. "T guess I'm just curious by nalurc. I always want lo hear both sides of I the question." Admitting she studied law "just I because everyone else In the law office where 1 was employed as a secretary was doing so and I didn't want to be left behind." Miss I Grossman since has become more I enthusiastic about her career. She I has distinguishOrj herself as a cap- I able, inidcrstundins and strict law- enforcer by her record of luiim- I pcachablc honesty and devolion to | justice. Despite her reputation.

Col. William G. Lewis, commanding officer of the base, said the change would become fitoilnn in M ai-t)i. Consider this: The war choked out a few firms completely, but a majority kept going and soon found their sales swollen by war conditions. Costs increased too but, even so. most of p Ihem are making much bigger profits annually before laxes than they did in a good average year of business before the war. The 1940 tax law calls profits "excess" if they are greater in any one year than the average annual profits of 1936 through 1939. Gift From Government Along with increased costs, born of war. many big corporations enjoy economies also incidental lo war. Costs can usually come down wilh greatly increased volume, and many manufacturers are selling everything they make to the government, as fast as they can make it. Some are relieved entirely of sales expense and kindred expenses like merchandising, warehousing, detcri- oralion, elc. Business establishments with government conlracts do not offer much protest against a stiff tax on war profits. Business men are able to sec sense in it.

Lockers Are Increasing In Popularity There is tremendous interest in Arkansas for frozen food lockers as shown by the -10 per cent increase In the number of plants constructed in the state during 19t4. according to County Agent Keith Hllbrcy. Citing the advantages of refrigeration plants and frozen food lockers Mr. nilbrey points out that: Ul Mississippi County farmers produce on their farms the very products which arc conveniently stored in food lockers, including meat, poultry, vegetables, and frail. ('21 The high quality of food is retained when stored lu lockers. (Hi A saving of both money and work may be had by using frozen food lockers. (4) Locker storage provides an ample supply of delicious vitamin- busy and unit costs down. Govern- , rich food at all times. meiit is always a close buyer; price The disadvantages of frozen cuts to government departments are certainly notlung new. K.vcess Prices N'cxl Technically, Ihe excess profits taxes that corporations pay now are not price concessions because the firms actually get the money and pay'it'back later. It is almost precisely n rebate to the government for big purchases. The only difference is that our excess profits tax is a law. War contracts are worded lo cancel themselves the day war ends, but the tax law has lo be replaced by Congress. If our 95,per cent excess profits tax law is nol 'amended to end with the war, American manufacturers will have to keep on rebating the government after the government, quits buying. Selling and warchbus-' ing costs will rclurn; there-will be no big-customer savings lo divide wilh anybody. If manufacturers give government 05 per cent of any part of post-war profits, they must hike prices. That will be an "excess", really, and the whole burden of it will fall on us average consumers. We can only protect ourselves by having proper lax legislation created now, to go into effect as soon as the war ends. food lockers are few, he said, namely in they can be costly If the rent and processing fees arc high; and (2) they are little value unless they are used all the lime. Mr. Bilbrey warned that products iriould not be stored for excessively long periods of time in food lockers. Pork should not be stored for over six months, but beef remains juicy and tasty up lo nine months. Fruits and vegetables, however, i do not slurl losing Iheir high quality nn- lil they have been in storage 12 months. At present lliere are frozen food lockers at Blytheville and-Osceola and plans are now in operation to establish new plants at Manila and Leachville.
